Throttle delay

I have a new 2015 RR that seems to have a slight throttle delay in the low end when getting on it. It does not appear to be a cable issue, but maybe a fuel management issue? The bike also seems to take 3 seconds to start after pushing the button. I know this does not seem like a long time, but compared to other bikes I have owned and ridden it is noticeable. The extra time is not necessarily bothersome, but concerned it could be related to the throttle delay or a symptom of a bigger issue.

is it new or used? miles? I'd say for the starting issue, the battery. although the bike is pretty new and shoulnd't have any issues like you're stating at least this soon.

It has only 600 miles, but i noticed it next day after delivery. It has improved slightly since then, but still seems it could be better. I have the extended warranty so it may just have to totally fail to fix or it or maybe just the way it is. The throttle delay thing may just be subjective. I am comparing to other new 600s that I have ridden. Maybe an ECU flash or power commander will be able to tune it out.

the "throttle delay" is normal. this is a tiny little engine, it's not going to do much below 3000 rpm.

the longer crank to start, do you let the pump finish priming before you hit the start button? or do you just flick the key and press the button

id give it time to "break in". like wibbly said, down low, theres really no torque. there are a couple mods you can do which should help increase some things, but it wouldn't be much.

Maybe take a video of you starting your bike; other members can chime in about how long or short it is. My 05 and 07 have varied between 1-5 seconds cranking time. Lots of factors.

Thanks for all the responses. I agree...probably being to critical and will most likely sort itself out. You get nervous that you will have to live with one of those little quirks that drive you nuts and is super expensive to remedy.

My son is 18 and I am 48 we share the bike. He pays for it, but I foot the bill for the insurance so I had a little say in the purchase. I could not get him to budge on a standard like the CB1000 over super sport bike so I rode several sport bikes and found the Honda to fit me the best. My son and I are both 5'11''. Even my son who is all about that aggressive riding, was thankful for Honda's comfort level during a 4 hour group ride. I am sure after a season of riding it will be all sorted out.
